Passion quotes

You can make those promises with just as much passion the second time around. Such is the regenerative power of the human heart.

- Marion Wink

I believe that one of life's greatest risks is never daring to risk.

- Oprah Winfrey

The lust for comfort murders the passion of the soul, and then walks grinning in the funeral.

- Khalil Gibran

Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life. Thus people haunted by the purposelessness of their lives try to find a new content not only by dedicating themselves to a holy cause but also by nursing a fanatical grievance. A mass movement offers them unlimited opportunities for both.

- Eric Hoffer

My passions are all asleep from my having slumbered till nearly eleven and weakened the animal fiber all over me to a delightful sensation about three degrees on this sight of faintness -- if I had teeth of pearl and the breath of lilies I should call it languor -- but as I am I must call it laziness. In this state of effeminacy the fibers of the brain are relaxed in common with the rest of the body, and to such a happy degree that pleasure has no show of enticement and pain no unbearable frown. Neither poetry, nor ambition, nor love have any alertness of countenance as they pass by me.

- Keats, John

The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.

- Yeats, William Butler

Our passionate preoccupation with the sky, the stars, and a God somewhere in outer space is a homing impulse. We are drawn back to where we came from.

- Hoffer, Eric

Men are the enemies of women. Promising sublime intimacy, unequalled passion, amazing security and grace, they nevertheless exploit and injure in a myriad subtle ways. Without men the world would be a better place: softer, kinder, more loving; calmer, quieter, more humane.

- Oakley, Ann

We eagerly get hold of a law that serves as a weapon to our passions.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Where ambition can cover its enterprises, even to the person himself, under the appearance of principle, it is the most incurable and inflexible of passions.

- Hume, David

Skill is the unified force of experience, intellect and passion in their operation.

- Ruskin, John

Anger is the most impotent of passions. It effects nothing it goes about, and hurts the one who is possessed by it more than the one against whom it is directed.

- Clarendon

You've got to get obsessed and stay obsessed.

- Irving, John

There's something amazing about the passion of youth and its power to sustain. If there's a more powerful energy source, I don't know about it.

- Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata

Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.

- Aquinas, St. Thomas

The holy passion of Friendship is so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring a nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money.

- Mark Twain

One of the surest evidences of an elevated taste is the power of enjoying works of impassioned terrorism, in poetry, and painting. The man who can look at impassioned subjects of terror with a feeling of exultation may be certain he has an elevated taste.

- Haydon, Benjamin

Saving lives is not a top priority in the halls of power. Being compassionate and concerned about human life can cause a man to lose his job. It can cause a woman not to get the job to begin with.

- Miedzian, Myriam

Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless.

- Balzac, Honore De
